Mike Moore above Endress + Hauser's Automation manufacturing floor. passed the heating-and-cooling comfort test many times over, starting on the day the Flowtec building was inaugurated. "It was 90 degrees outside, and we had what will probably be the most number of people we'll ever have in it, and it was totally comfortable." The system is also saving money, beating the heating and cooling costs in the buildings that were replaced by more than 40%. Other LEED issues Substantial as the geothermal project was, it added only six points to the company's LEED tally for its two new manufacturing buildings. And while many fundamental LEED requirements were included in the buildings' designs (see sidebar), it was important that the design team also include one or two larger ones. The new Customer Center, for example, which awaits its LEED certification, features a high-tech boiler/chiller system for its heating and cooling. Though located too far from the pond to be on the geothermal system, this building's HVAC system "does the same things mechanically the pond does," says Poland, and it built LEED points. The company also opted for white roofs on all new buildings-an unusual feature for structures in central Indiana, but necessary for LEED. Other significant LEED add-ons included energy-efficient lighting and building automation systems and construction procedures that called for controlled debris removal. "We were 28 | MAINTENANCE TECHNOLOGY required to divert at least 75% of the site's construction material away from landfills," says Poland. His crews were able to top that, diverting about 87% from the three-building project. Detailed docuamentation was also required, both for disposed/ recycled material and material used in construction, which had to include certain levels of recycled content, and be sourced locally. "This meant that everything we used-steel, drywall, concrete-had to be produced within 500 miles of this area," says Poland. "We could not bring in material from outside that radius." While there was never an argument against pursuing LEED certifications for the new Greenwood buildings, it was decided early on to seek only the LEED level that proved most practical from a business perspective, which was "Certified." The Greenwood team reasoned that the added cost needed to obtain the higher point requirements of Silver, Gold and Platinum levels would not produce significantly greater environmental paybacks. "We were not going to 'buy into' levels," says Demaree. "It didn't make sense to us. But where there was good ROI in terms of energy savings, we would go for that. We wanted to take a very practical approach." Their decision means that a high-point/high-cost upgrade like a solar photovoltaic system was not considered for the Greenwood project. But the sun was not left out of their plans. "All the new buildings have light-harvesting components," APRIL 2015
